plot taming … on hold!

…so after my mum’s valiant weeding efforts over Easter we made it back to the plot to plant our onion sets and sow some carrots.  That was weeks ago and after the downpours we’ve had I suspect they may well have drowned by now as we’ve not made it back since!  Never mind, E had a lovely time being walked around our patch, admiring Daddy’s hawthorn hacking handy work and meeting our allotment  neighbour Pat.

    Start them young l say! I had my first patch when l was 5. I will be interested to know how your seeds have fared since you sowed them with all this rain. Good luck and enjoy that lovely boy!

    lynne – apparently his dad used to wink at people from his pram as a baby!

    peggy – we love hand made knits and this one was passed on by a friend who’s little boy is now 3 – I’m sure we’ll blink and E will be that old toddling around the plot!

    shaheen – he’s a very grinny baby but especially with smiley ladies

    trevor – I’ll be interested to see how my seeds have fared too when I finally make it down there again! we certainly do (enjoy our lovely boy :o)

    fennel and fern – I think vegging about is all we’ll be doing this year! Hey ho, always next year and we’ll have an extra, all be it tiny, pair of hands then

    Hello, I’m a New Media specialist working for an advertising agency based in London. We are working with a new start up business, who send personalised cakes for any occasion through your letter box. I was wondering if you would be interested in doing a review of one of their cakes. Let me know if this is something you would be interested in and I can sort out getting the cake to you.

    Hi Biddy
    How lovely that you found me – I’d be delighted to review a Baker Days cake. So many to choose from on the site – a new baby cake would be most appropriate I’d say. I’ll email you my contact details. Let me know if you’d like me to recommend any other food bloggers as reviewers. cheerio, N x

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife E found his playgroup Angel Gabriel costume and photo from 2 years ago and found it amusing how much his arms had grown!

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
